A Queensland teenager has been charged with setting his ex-girlfriend on fire.
Police allege the 17-year-old man used a flammable liquid to burn the 17-year-old woman following an argument in the South Brisbane suburb of Marsden on Friday.
He was charged with intending to cause grievous bodily harm after he was arrested on Sunday afternoon.
He is due to face Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Monday.
7 News understands neighbours heard the girl screaming for help and rushed to assist her.
It’s believed she was hosed down and her body was covered in plastic, until paramedics arrived at the scene.
The girl was placed into a medically induced coma in Royal Brisbane Hospital.
She will undergo treatment for burns that cover her arms, legs and upper body.
So horrifying! We wish her a full recovery.
